Abstract

L’aprenentatge servei és una activitat educativa que es fonamenta en l’experiència de la participació social dels estudiants durant el seu procés de formació. En l’àmbit universitari té un valor afegit, perquè contribueix a desenvolupar competències clau en una doble direcció: com a ciutadans i com a futurs professionals. Aquest llibre recull vint relats que descobreixen aspectes concrets de la realització d’aquestes activitats, des de la perspectiva tant del docent i de l’estudiant com dels col·laboradors de les entitats implicades. Per exemple, uns estudiants d’Econòmiques i de Comunicació ajuden emprenedors en risc d’exclusió social a tirar endavant la seva idea empresarial amb microcrèdits procedents de finances ètiques; o, a través de les TIC, estudiants de Psicologia promouen la inclusió educativa en contextos desfavorits. Aquestes experiències, en què participen diverses universitats (UAB, UB, UdG, UdL, UIC, UPC, UPF, URL i URV) i que abracen diferents ensenyaments, posen de manifest la necessitat de continuar treballant perquè l’aprenentatge servei esdevingui un eix central de la política universitària.

Abstract

Good quality management of the health system demands a critical mass of health professionals with sound technical knowledge. The education that produces a workforce of appropriate size and skills is often a challenge in the delivery of quality health services. Incidentally, health professionals’ education has not kept pace with the new emerging challenges. Recent globalization of health has further led to international migration of health professionals, thereby leading to cross-border recognition of health workers with an appropriate skill-mix, knowledge, and competence. The Lancet Commission Report of 2010 highlighted the need to develop a common strategy at a global level for postgraduate medical, nursing, and public health education that reaches beyond the confines of national borders and the silos of individual professions. This vision would require a series of instructional and institutional reforms, which should be guided by two proposed outcomes: transformative learning and interdependence in education. The purpose of this Research Topic is to increase the shared understanding of the current status of the education of the health workforce around the globe, particularly those working in the public health sector. With this foundation, further research and evaluation studies can then be done with a perspective that addresses global workforce issues impacting access, prevention, and care.

Abstract

The focus of this Special Issue is aimed at enhancing the discussion of Engineering Education, particularly related to technological and professional learning. In the 21st century, students face a challenging demand: they are expected to have the best scientific expertise, but also highly developed social skills and qualities like teamwork, creativity, communication, or leadership. Even though students and teachers are becoming more aware of this necessity, there is still a gap between academic life and the professional world. In this Special Edition Book, the reader can find works tackling interesting topics such as educational resources addressing students’ development of competencies, the importance of final year projects linked to professional environments, and multicultural or interdisciplinary challenges.
